SNMP is a commonly used protocol for network monitoring and MIB is a database associated with SNMP to manage entities. SNMP can be enabled by selecting the desired SNMP version as described in the steps below.

Before you begin:
  • To download the VeloCloud Edge MIB: go to the Remote Diagnostic screen (Test & Troubleshooting > Remote Diagnostics) and run MIB for VeloCloud Edge. Copy and paste results onto your local machine.
  • Install all MIBs required by VELOCLOUD-EDGE-MIB on the client host, including SNMPv2-SMI, SNMPv2-CONF, SNMPv2-TC, INET-ADDRESS-MIB, IF-MIB, UUID-TC-MIB, and VELOCLOUD-MIB. All the above-mentioned MIBs, except VELOCLOUD-MIB, can be found online. For VELOCLOUD-MIB, check the VeloCloud website.
Supported MIBs
  • SNMP MIB-2 System
  • SNMP MIB-2 Interfaces
  • VELOCLOUD-EDGE-MIB
  • HOST-RESOURCES-MIB, from RFC 1514
Procedure to Configure SNMP Settings at Profile Level:
  1. Obtain the VELOCLOUD-EDGE-MIB from Remote Diagnostic.
  2. Install all MIBs required by VELOCLOUD-EDGE-MIB. (See "Before you begin" for more information.
  3. From the navigation panel, go to Configure > Profiles.

    The Configuration Profiles screen appears.

  4. Select a profile you want to configure SNMP settings for, and click the Device icon under the Device column.

    The Configuration Profiles screen for the selected Profile appears.

  5. Scroll down to the SNMP Settings area. You can choose between two versions, v2c or v3.
  6. For a SNMP v2c Config follow the steps below:
    1. Check the v2c checkbox.
    2. Type in a Port in the Port textbox. The default setting is 161.
    3. In the Community textbox, type in a word or sequence of numbers that will act as a 'password' that will allow you access to the SNMP agent.
    4. For Allowed IPs:
      • Check the Any checkbox to allow any IP to access the SNMP agent.
      • To restrict access to the SNMP agent, uncheck the Any checkbox and enter the IP address(es) that will be allowed access to the SNMP agent.
